like a gun, you put it to your head
Do you ever see the light blinking on your answering machine but just walk away?
I do this all the time. I've done it my whole life.
Sometimes that light blinks for days. Who are you, and what do you want from me? Because I know you want something.
Even the message just saying hi is never really that.
Sometimes I even stop seeing the light after awhile. It's still blinking but I don't notice. Like a flaw in someone's face, it just starts being there.
I think I might be the last generation that is partly repelled by the phone.
I know there are good messages, things about winning or receiving, zipping around the communications stratosphere, but there must be something in my own phone that automatically deletes those.
